O'Reilly's was recommended to us for fish chowder and that's what we had. On a gray rainy day a bowl of good fish chowder and a beer hit the spot. Would love to go back on a live music evening and follow up with a...More

We went to George Street looking for some entertainment and ended up with a meal as well. Very good selection of pup food. Service was fairly fast although that evening they were understaffed.

Nothing special here with regards to the menu. Just typical greasy pub grub. The nachos aren't too bad but nothing special. The afternoon music matinee is nice, especially Sunday afternoons. It's the place to go to if you are from out of province to experience...More
